TinyPad  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.1.2
by: Gello [More]

TinyPad is a simple but powerful notepad addon that's easy to use.

This addon works in Retail Shadowlands, Classic Era and The Burning Crusade Classic clients.

How to Use

  • To summon: /pad or /tinypad, bind a key, or turn on a minimap button in the settings panel.
  • To resize: Drag the resize grip in the lower right corner of the window.
  • The mod should be self explanatory how to use. Mouseover buttons to see what they do.

Notes
  • To add links to pages: Bring up a TinyPad page and put the blinking cursor where you want to insert a link, then shift+click an item, spell, recipe, quest or achievement as you ordinarily would to chat.
  • To view links: Click them.
  • To send links: Shift+click to chat as you would normally.
  • Links may display only a handful of characters, but they have many hidden control characters. The EditBox is not intended to handle massive amounts of text (the limit in TinyPad is 8192 characters), so keep that in mind if trying to cram the entire contents of the Adventure Journal loot pages into one page.
  • Searches are case insensitive.
  • You can bind a key to search.
  • While locked, the window won't go away with ESC, but you can still toggle it with a macro, key bind or minimap button; and you can move it while holding the Shift Key.
  • You can also run pages with /run TinyPad:Run(page)
  • You can add a page with TinyPad:Insert("text here adds a new page")
  • You can delete multiple pages with TinyPad.DeletePagesContaining("regex") NOTE: be careful with this one.
  • Users who edited the Lua in previous version to choose your own fonts, look in panels\fontbar.lua now. (You can replace any of the 3 fonts with your own but it will ignore a 4th font, sorry!)

This is interesting, thanks for posting it. I'll experiment a bit more with other ways of doing a warning. Possibly increasing the 8k limit too.

TinyPad(no delete symbols ver)(5.4.8)

Hi, thank u for this usefull addon.
I add some edit (for MOP version) to protect from deleting symbols (after its more than 8193 on the page).
Hope it will help some1. Tested only on Tauri-server.

So i edit this:

Code:
<OnTextChanged>

-------------edit---------------

TPuserInput1=userInput

-------------edit---------------

TinyPad.OnTextChanged(self)

</OnTextChanged>
and this:

Code:
function tinypad:OnTextChanged()

	tinypad.undo:SetEnabled(tinypad:GetPageText()~=editBox:GetText())
	
----edit----	

if not(tinypad:GetPageText()~=editBox:GetText()and strlenutf8(editBox:GetText())>8192)then 
TPtext1=editBox:GetText()
--print("TPtext1")
elseif(TPuserInput1)then
--print("userInput")
if(tinypad:GetPageText()~="")then editBox:SetText(TPtext1)
--print("TPtext2")
--TinyPad:NewPage()TinyPadEditBox:SetFocus()
end
BasicScriptErrorsButton:Click()print("page # "..current.." have more than 8192 symbols")message("page # "..current.." have more than 8192 symbols")
BasicScriptErrors:SetHeight(math.max(128,(strlenutf8(BasicScriptErrorsText:GetText())*1.1)))
end

----edit----

end

Update going up this morning should fix that. Thanks for bringing it up!

I really like the 'new' TinyPad. The updated (from beta) solution to the 'grip' when moving the window is great.

I didn't realize this addon hadn't been updated for almost two years. Sorry about that!

Once I finish on another addon, I'm going to rewrite this addon, principally to make the bookmarks frame an inset frame that's scrollable. I have so many bookmarks now it spans half the screen and looks awful. Let me know of any other simple features you guys want but try to keep ideas to within the scope of a simple notepad addon.

It does work, though I haven't tested all the linking capabality, so a Classic version hasn't been posted yet. I'll see if I can go through and post it this weekend. But in the meantime if you load outdated addons it should work.
Awesome, Thanks!

That's a really good question and the practical answer is pretty tame, but it's mostly for style. Some people use locals for everything because local variables are faster to reference than global. I won't dispute that, but feel the effect is too negligible to notice unless doing a cpu-bound method like a sort. Some people use locals for everything because it's good programming practice to make everything private and to create getters/setters to manipulate them elsewhere. True also, but here it's kind of inevitable that stuff is global so there's little point. Ultimately, for me, it just feels more natural to use a local reference in that situation.
Awesome thanks for getting back to me! Like I said I really have learned a lot reading your code, as a beginner to WoW addons its super helpful to have well written references!

This Addon is Great!!

This is such a great addon! It works so well and looks so good! Amazing non-intrusive UI. Use this all the time for keeping notes, or testing API's with in-game lua scripting.

Well done!

PS: Thanks for writing such well commented code, I've learned so much reading through it. Could you explain the reasoning behind the first two lines:

Lua Code:
  1. local tinypad = TinyPad
  2. local editBox = TinyPadEditBox

Why create local references to globally accessible tables?
